Israeli bulldozers level lands in southern Hebron

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli bulldozers leveled lands in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, locals said on Sunday.

Residents of Dura said that Israeli forces had declared that the Kharsa Triangle -- an area of land south of the village -- was a closed military zone, and had forbidden Palestinians from entering the area.

The locals told Ma’an that the Israeli army was planning on building a military watchtower there.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they would look into the reports.

Palestinian communities are routinely subjected to restrictions of their freedom of movement, including the declaration of closed military zones and arbitrary road closures by Israeli military forces for purported "security reasons," acts which rights groups have denounced as amounting to collective punishment.
